Nursing is a job that requires and offers a range of specializations. And for this reason, it’s considered as one of the noblest professions in the world—thanks to the efforts of Florence Nightingale and all the passionate nurses sparking global change.
Today, there’s a high demand for nurses across the globe. Filipino nurses, specifically, are valued in emerging countries like the United States, Japan, Canada, Australia, and Saudi Arabia. In fact, according to World Education News & Reviews, “Nurses and other health professionals provide vital in-high-demand services in virtually all societies and are among the groups of workers likely to continue to migrate internationally in high numbers. At present, there is an acute global shortage of health workers that is unlikely to dissipate in the near term. Nursing shortages are not new and have plagued countries to varying degrees before.”
